Hopedale Press has announced the release of another Nancy A. Collins’ work in a digital edition. This one is the Lovecraftian novelette The Thing From Lover’s Lane.
Description: It’s the 1950s and Misty Valley is just another sleepy, All-American town, nestled along the Miskatonic River. Unlike sister cities Arkham and Dunwich, Misty Valley has managed to avoid the peculiar occurrences that have plagued the region since the days of the colonial witch trials. That is, until the night Carol Anne Fairweather and her boyfriend, Billy Mahan, parked too far down on Lover’s Lane. On that old, foggy night Billy was attacked and knocked unconscious, while Carol Anne was brutally raped by someone – or something – that came out of the woods. Now, in order to clear his name, Billy must discover what really happened that horrible night. But can his mind withstand the awful truth he uncovers? Or will he end up as mad as Old Gooney, the crazed hermit who claims to keep watch against the dark forces that would make Misty Valley their own?
First published in 1995, The Thing From Lover’s Lane was a finalist for the Horror Writers Association’s prestigious Bram Stoker Award for Best Novelette.
